organizations that have distorted islam, or falsely used the banner of islam to engage in their destructive acts. and we've got to be clear about that. we've got to be clear about that, because if we're going to successfully reduce the terrorist threat, then we need all the allies we can get. the folks who are most interested in a war between the united states or the west and islam are al qaeda. that's what they have been banking on. we want to be clear about who the enemy is here. it's a handful of a tiny, minority of people who are engaging in horrific acts. and have killed muslims more than anybody else. the other reason it's important for us to remember that is because we have got millions of muslim-americans, our fellow citizens in this country. they're going to school with our kids. they're our neighbors. they're our friends. they're our co-workers. and, you know, when we start acting as if their religion is somehow offensive, what are we saying to them? i've got muslims who are fighting in afghanistan. in the uniform of the united states armed services. they're out there, putting their li

. her previous campaign manager has come out and said she just used the campaign money to pay her own rent which is not legal use of campaign money. i think she will try to just brush that story aside as the typical cross fire that any politician gets into, and try to find her way to the middle on some of these policy questions. >> but in 49 days, how much nondamage can she do to herself when as rachel maddow showed these tapes from mtv, there are tapes in which a candidate for senate for the use, which is what she is now, is discussing openly how people shouldn't masturbate? that would seem to be a difficult sell even in delaware. >> she's going to say it's 14 years ago and she is going to try to not get into repeating those specifics that she got into on that tape. and try to say something that sounds, indicate religiously high minded. that is kind of general. and saying no one should press me on these issues. she may take what she took into a punish you've and now try to play it as a personal issue that should not be questioned. >>> >> 30 seconds, it's a speight impression. does sh

"hardball's" up right now. >>> all hail the coalition. let's play "hardball." obama-clich obama-clichbt. the best move he made was to forge a coalition with the other force in the democratic party, the clintons, naming hillary clinton was just the beginning. last week, she took the front line job. peace in the middle east. this week, bill clinton joined hands with obama touting him in advance of the midterm elections. could there be a stronger role for the clintons after the election? we've got arianna huffington to help with the alliance. is the quote still taboo? we're talking christine o'donnell. our friend bill mahr rebroadcast a clip of o'donnell from the show in which she said she once dabbled in witchcraft. what will the voters of delaware make of that? that said, extremist rhetoric was the official language this weekend. dale peterson said things like, president obama hates america. you know, the usual stuff. this hatred has gotten far out. so far, how the democrats going to fight with it. how about newt gingrich? he's out with t
you so much. that does it for us. >>> let's play "hardball." >>> good evening, leading off tonight, realtime with bill maher. is nothing sacred? bill maher plays "hardball" tonight right up front on the midterms, the tea party, sarah palin and of course, the candidate who has shown two dozen times, the saucer's apprenti apprentice. do you were this moment with president obama? >> quite frankly, i'm exhausted. of defending you, your administration, defending the mantle of change that i voted for and deeply disappointed where we are right now. >> well, the woman talking truth to the president is velma hart. she gins us to talk about how president obama has failed to meet his challenges. >>> and we heard last night from the values voters summit and the attacks on muslim and the claim that president obama wants to impose sharia law. republicans are selling the scare. should some be worried? >>> plus, just say no. late this afternoon, senate republicans voted down an effort to repeal the effort on gays serving openly in the united states military. we'll get into the politics of that sto
i'm keith olbermann. good night and good luck. >>> please join us for the live edition of "countdown" every week night at 8:00 p.m. >>> tackling tax cuts. president obama sets the stage for a showdown with prens over plans to stimulate the economy. >>> devastation in detroit, flames sweep through dozens of homes in michigan. >>> and officials take no chances with a toy pony bomb square. >>> this is "first look" on msnbc. we begin this morning with getting personal. president obama will dig deep during a speech in cleveland today where, according to administration officials, he'll draw on his own personal background to convince voters that he knows what it's like to struggle through tough times. tracy potts joins us with more from washington on how the president plans to boost the economy. >> republican leader john boehner and in a region hit hard by unemployment. the president is expected to urge congress to let the bush tax cuts expire for the wealthy. individuals earning overed 200,000 and couples over $250,000. plus, he wants to spend $50 billion on transportation pr
with a built in expiration date at the end of this year. he demanded the democrats vote on taxes without using the suspension procedure. suspension would require a 2/3 vote. more on that in a moment. the senate's fail youure to vote, dick durbin on what he sees as simple math. >> i can count and i know you can too. we have 59 democrats and not a single democrat supports our position that we need to do something responsible, but to help middle income families bring us out of the recession. >> 'is that different after the election? >> well, i hope it will be different. occasionally one republican will respect us. what it gets down to is we can count. we don't have 60 votes for the tax position. we want to say after the election, when we still face a deadline by the end of the year, we will take up the tax issues. >> however immediately after the election, the terms of three a pointed senators expyre from west virginia, illinois and delaware. if they are seated immediately as expected, the republican filibuster would be harder to over item. another issue with which democrats may want to come to g
elections in november. nbc's tracie potts joins us. good morning, tracie. >> reporter: what to do about taxes. the senate confirmed what the house already said, this is not going to happen before you go to the polls in november. senate democrats got together, but could not agree on how to move forward. the issue is whether or not to preserve the bush tax cuts for everyone or just for the middle class and let taxes go up on the wealthy. it is a political hot potato headed into november. not one that the democrats now say they want to touch before you go to the polls, however, what they did back, a small business bill, $30 billion, a new fund to help small businesses get loans. this was mainly a democratic issue. the idea here is that if businesses have more cash, they'll hire people, buy equipment, expand and help pull this economy out of a slump. the gop called it a bailout. their plan is their new pledge to america, a government that's too big, they say is something they want to get rid of if they're elected in november. they also want to expand tax cuts and several other measures that
especially against the homeland. senator joe lieberman joins us now. senator, thanks so much. what is the level of threat to the homeland as it was described by janet napolitano? what are your concerns and how well do you think they're doing to guard against it? >> right, good to be with you again. >> you, too. >> this was our third annual hearing on the evolving nature of the terrorist threat o our homeland, and what we're doing about it and we look back at the year past, it's clear from all the information we have that the pace of attacks against our homeland has increased that more of the attacks are coming from organizations that are loosely connected to al qaeda but are not al qaeda and that more and more american citizens are part of those attacks, so that the war with the islamic extremists and terrorists that is global is being brought by our enemy much more here at home and it's a warning to the american people, i'd say the agencies before us, homeland security, fbi, national counterterrorism center, and all of the people who work for them are doing an extraordinarily good
us with more. >>> the first sign of hope from iran that at least one of those young american hikers might be freed after a year in a tehran jail. >>> and today i'm andrea mitchell live in washington. >>> the fbi just met with pastor terry jones, but despite widespread condemnation, worldwide condemnation and condemnation from the white house, the u.s. military, the state department, there is no sign yet that he is backing down from his plan to burn 200 copies of the holy koran. >> our burning of the koran is to call the attention that something is wrong. something is wrong. it is possibly time for us in a new way to actually stand up, confront terrorism. there is something very much wrong with our policies. >> nbc's kerry sanders is live outside the dove world outreach center in gainesville, florida. kerry, pastor jones told you this is not a stunt. and now we have the president saying it is. what's the reaction in gainesville as all of this is approaching? >> well, outside of this pasteur here, we're right next to a cow pasteur, outside the community there is a fair amount of anger
finally did what so many of us have been begging him to do. he went on offense. he gave a name and a face to the republican "just say no" obstructionism. wannabe speaker john boehner. he called out boehner and the gop for doing nothing but root for failure. he reminded us what makes democrats different than republicans. in short, he reminded us why we elected him in the first place. this is the kind of performance by the president we're going to see apparently every day from the democrats if they are going to stay into power. >>> plus, secretary of state hillary clinton, general petraeus and even the vatican are now calling on pastor terri jones to abandon his plan to burn korans on september 11th, but the florida pastor is not backing down. tonight, i'm going to ask a pastor at jones' church if his colleague is willing to take thç heat when his protests air on tv sets in every middle east cafe inflaming muslim extremists and perhaps well endangering the lives of americans. >>> also, the professional left has been gunning for rahm emanuel and may get its wish if he leaves to run for mayo
of the politico. thanks so much. go statesman. that's "hardball." thanks for being with us. right notice time for "the ed show" with ed schultz. >>> good evening, americans and welcome to "the ed show." tonight, live from minneapolis, these stories on the table and hit my hot buttons at this hour. how about this, glenn beck's got a crush on republican governor chris christie, when christie's not bullying teachers he's trying to bully voters. i'll talk to a voter who sparred with christie in just a moment. >>> and speaking of beck, he's the one saying, violence is going to be coming from the left? well, a male sharron angle supporter tea partier reportedly punched a female harry reid supporter during a candidate forum last night. oh, yeah! radio talk show host heidi harris was there, and we'll get that story and get some rapid fire response. >>> and tea partier christine o'donnell, ben quail and demon sheep have one thing in common. details coming up in "the playbook" tonight and the congress's just done something really big in dealing with manipulation occurrencewe china. we'll have that stor

to run against the ideal, if it's a referendum, every one of us will get beats. nobody will get elected. we'd have nobody in office because there's no such thing as the perfect public servant. the choices you make in politics are like the choices you make in life. you look at the facts as best you can and you make the best available choice. >> that's part of a long interview that we did today for an upcoming documentary on the former president. >>> coming up congressman james clyburn said yesterday on "hardball" that if republicans win the house they'll use subpoena power to try to delegitimize president obama. republican congressman darrell issa called us and said that congressman clyburn was being, quote, paranoid. up next i'll ask issa what republicans are actually planning. you're watching "hardball" from dublin only on msnbc. , no. oh. but i did pick up your dry cleaning and had your shoes shined. well, i made you a reservation at the sushi place around the corner. well, in that case, i better get back to these invoices... which i'll do right after making your favorite pancakes. yo
. >> i suspected you would say that. while it's not the wording that you've used in criticizing this pledge, again, they're not getting the traction. i know you love to call sarah palin sister sarah. i'm curious to see if she'll defend the pledge. she did not mention the really party in the new web ad, talking about this tea party movement. to our knowledge we didn't hear a lot of touting of the tea party as the republican members of the house talked about this pledge to america. >> look who has done well. christine o'donnell came out of nowhere and knocked off an established republican. this fellow paladino is beating up cuomo mercifumercifully. he's not out there putting out a program. he's going after them. he's on the offensive. in politics, this democrats have a fortress they have to defend. they have a record. you can attack any direction. you call the time and place. instead of going out there and staying on the defensive, they build their own fortress. now the democrats are attacking them. so you have us, you have jim clyburn and other fellows in a big argument with the
, luke. keep us posted and let us know. >> will do. >> when we get a final tally on the vote. i want to bring in rachel maddox. as you know, a couple of the waivering republicans said you've got to give us a little more room for amendments here. harry reid said no. this is the result. >> well, there's a couple of things. first of all, it's a historic decision to filibuster the defense reauthorization bill. this is something that has passed 48 times in 48 years. it just passes. this is one of the things that just passes. and that's why actually you've seen over the years lots of amendments, lots of things passed that are attached to this. originally when don't ask, don't tell was instituted, it was passed as an amendment to this bill. in 2007, we saw republican senator orrin hatch attach the dream act to this bill. some of john mccain's campaign finance provisions have been attached to this bill. so republican objections that they are very upset about democratic amendments to this are a little strange, given how many amendments republicans have attached to it. also harry reid's office
in cleveland, he attacked us for closing a few of these loopholes. mr. boehner and the republicans in congress said no to these projects. fought them tooth and nail. mr. boehner has so far said no to infrastructure, that's bad for america. so let me be clear to mr. boehner and everybody else, we should not hold middle class tax cuts hostage any longer. when these same republicans, including mr. boehner, were in charge, the number of earmarks and pet projects went up, not down. >> is that the presidentç gettg turbocharged in the president hammered boehner throughout the speech including this. when he laid out an incredible small business idea and proposal. i am proposing that all-american businesses should be allowed to write off all the investment they do in 2011. and this will help small businesses upgrade their plants and equipment and will encourage large corporations to get off the sidelines and start putting their profits to work in places like cleveland and toledo and dayton. to most of you, i'll bet this just seems like common sense. but not to mr. boehner and his allies. >> i think t
. they do not. you can say they are. >> that is the case, senator. >> major mike almy joins us live. >>> and the senator standing for reelection by write-in scores a sad own goal against her own campaign. the "the rachel maddow show" starts right now. >>> today in the united states senate, language in the defense authorization bill that would let the military "don't ask, don't tell" fell to defeat. senate republicans, in fact, took the historic step of filibustering the entire defense authorization bill in order to maintain the "don't ask, don't tell" policy. they would not even allow debate on the defense bill because it included that language to let the military repeal its own policy on keeping gay people out of the military. and so we don't have a bill to fund the military this year. at least so far. and the "don't ask, don't tell" policy lives. what happens next? well, here is a clue. when i interviewed vice president joe biden less than a week ago, i asked him why if the administration was so opposed to "don't ask, don't tell," why were they still implementing it? why were they
-- >> stephanie, great to have you with us tonight. >>> tonight our text survey question, i asked you, do you think that the tea party shares your values? 8% said of you said yes. 92% of you said, no. have a great weekend. that's "the ed show." chris matthews and "hardball" is next. see you monday. >>> palin gives iowa a try. let's play "hardball." >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews, down in washington, leading off tonight, the senator from delaware. that's right. the prominence of christine odon thel week, tells you how much the republican party has changed. at least for now. the grand ole party is history. this week's primary voting especially in delaware has changed the calculus. less for this november than for november 2012. if you're a classic lineup, well, if you're a classic lineup the endorsement's big money establishment republican like mitt romney, you've had a very bad week. who had a good week? the candidate who wasn't in today's obama-bashing viewers values summit here in washington, sarah palin. this is her parent now. the only question is what she wants to do herself, run or
to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. for the next hour in which we shall celebrate the launch of lawrence o'donnell's new show which is tonight right after this hour. we shall celebrate the arrival of our new desk which inexplicably has something to do with the start of lawrence's new show with you i'm not sure what. i'm very excite body my new desk. we shall also celebrate the return of barack hussein obama. he is back in talking points just in case any republicans previous efforts to convince you he is secretly foreign did not work on you, they're going to give it one more shot. that's all to come over the course of the hour. >>> but we begin tonight by putting a giant asterisk on the well worn political truism that all politics is local. the big decision democrats had to make about this year's elections was whether or not they would try to run this year's elections as a national campaign, whether they were going to try to run as democrats versus republicans or whether they were going to try to block out everything happening at the national level and, instead, hop

[ female announcer ] new aveeno nourish plus shine. >>> developing now at the top of the hour here on msnbc sunday, where it's 10:00 a.m. on the east coast, 7:00 a.m. out west, we're taking a look at a podium at which the pastor eddie long, the embattled pastor of a megachurch there in atlanta, is expected to stand there shortly coming up. he's expected to be accompanied by his wife, his attorney, as well as attorneys for the ministry. and he will be talking about allegations of sexual abuse and coercion of four teenage young men into acts apparently, he's reported to have given them lavish jewelry, even cars, vacations, these all allegations by these four. he will address these allegations coming up shortly. but earlier he did hold the first of two morning church services at that megachurch which about 10,000 people attended. let's listen to part of what he said to the congregation. >> i have never in my life portrayed myself as a perfect m man. but i am not th
governor palin for your endorsement, because she got behind us war-weary folks and gave us a boost of encouragement when we needed it, and she was a vote against the politics of personal destruction. >> let's look at the national map to get a sense of how wide the power is, i think, of sarah palin. look at the greens. those are the pray mary picks she picked across the country, and numerically, she had 25 wins and 11 losses and seven no contest. that adds up to almost 50 candidates. when they lose, they can be better help to you next time around because they have nothing to do but help you win the next presidential election. it's sometimes smarter. we will talk about jimmy carter. >> in the new world she can help raise money, and the shocking thing is how much the establishment party has failed to get republicans out to vote. the republican base is turning out with these insurgents now. who established the best turnout model for the republicans, george bush? they had a tremendous ability. >> they were church people too, as well. >> they are not speaking to them. whatever her succes
for us having to absorb the last one. >>> as christine o'donnell finds the gold mine, on the same subject, sharron angle has a big mouth. >> when i said it on sean hannity's television show, we made $40,000 before we even got out of the studio in new york. >> the revelation that fox news is one giant fund-raising and publicity gift in kind to the republican party. i know, you're shocked. >> i'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here. >> your winnings, sir. >>> all the news and commentary now on "countdown." >> i had some business in new york today, so thank you for having me on. >>> good evening from new york. with the final session of congress before election day coming down to the wire now, democrats are still torn between whether to force republicans to vote now in defense of tax cuts for the rich or to duck a vote on extending the bush tax cuts and let republicans campaign against them for letting all taxes rise. if it seems like a no-brainer, our fifth story tonight should remove all doubt. a "countdown" special report, the reality behind the republican argument m
don't impose them on us we pick them here, you guys for eight years or more than that under bush destroyed the republican party 2006. we lost both houses. you nominated somebody that got less of the vote in california than barry goldwater. now, thank you, we will pick our own leaders. and i think it is an excellent message to send. >> by the way that is the speech that edward dirkson gave. >> twice you have taken us down the road to defeat. we shall not follow you again. >> frightening. that was 1952. chuck, here is karl rove. i want chuck to jump in here, karl rove and sean hannity on fox last night with one point of view. let's listen. >> it does conservatives little good to support candidates who at the end of the day, while they may be conservative in their public statements, do not evince the characteristics of rectitude and truthfulness and sincerity and character that the voters looking for. there's just a lot of nutty things she's been saying. sounds like you don't support them, but i will tell you -- >> i'm for the republican, but i got to tell you, we were looking at ei
to feel comfortable with. so they want to point out these contrasts and say democrats have taken us in the last two years is where we want to continue to go. we know there is a ways to go in produ reducing unemployment rates, but they think it will take the company backwards in a reverse direction. >> the president is attending a campaign party for sestak today. how does the white house pick the races in which the president is going to get involved as opposed to the ones where he's not going to show up for those candidates? >> well, certainly there is a lot of things that they're considering when they decide where to send the president. they want to send him to places where they believe he'll be effective, and certainly you have some races in some areas where the candidate doesn't really want to be tied too closely to the president because of the region they're in and what the voters there want to see. but in a place like here, philadelphia, you have a race with sestak and pat toomey and it's a pretty tight race. you have a lot of democrats across the state of pennsylvania, so they'
's in an interview right now on camera. his son informed us that he is willing to meet with me and as soon as he finishes his interview that meeting will take place. >> reporter: what is your message today that is different than yesterday? or is it just more of applied pressure? >> i'm not applying any pressure. i'm trying to awaken his sense and his religious beliefs. to remind him. i believe that a reminder benefits the believers where if he looks to his heart of hearts and if he looks to the scripture, he will find the answer. jesus would tell him, this is not the right approach. and i came to him with some ideas that i think he might be interested in. and i want to discuss them with him and hopefully that will be the deal maker. >> reporter: is the damage already done? as the expression goes, has the horse left the barn? there's another person in tennessee who says on 9/11 he plans to burn korans in his house, videotape it and put it on the internet. if this goes viral, does it matter now at in the point whether he does it or not? >> i think that that's what everybody was afraid of. the copy
about iran. she joins us in her very first interview before addressing the general assembly and meeting all the other delegates. susan rice, thank you so much. iran again challenging the u.n. watchdog saying it is operating illegally, has no right to crack down. he's also saying the u.n. sanctions are having no effect, the effect of an interview -- in one interview he says it was a spoiled kleenex. what is your best information on how to deal with iran and whether these sanctions are having any effect? because certainly in his public statements skand iran's behavio it doesn't seem to have stepped back. >> you wouldn't expect the leader of iran to come ask say the sanctions are killing me. but with all the evidence we've seen, these have proven to be the toughest set of sanctions. u.n. community has ever imposed on iran and they're having difficulty as well as having iran move ships to acquire access to banking. they came in three categories. first, that that we passed at the united nations securities council. then the european union came behind, as did japan and south korea, others, can
pelligrini who lost his house in the fire. gentlemen, first of all, thank you so much for being with us. it is so good to see you both okay and well. bob, let me start with you because as i read your story this morning, nothing short of remarkable. you were actually right next door to the explosion. you and your family are home and you're just watching a football game. tell me what you saw and what you heard. >> well what happened was the ground and the house just started shaking violently, not like an earthquake. it was just shaking and then we'd seen this huge orange plume about 100 feet high go up into the sky and i go, oh, man, it started to come down the street towards us and then shifted away from us. but you could start to feel the heat through the windows and i started to see my windows crack. i went over and felt the door, that wasn't hot yet but the window by the door was and all of a sudden we started getting smoke into the bay window as if the wood on the outside was catching fire. at that point we realized we had to get out. so, my wife, my son and my dog, we went out the b
"hardball." >>> good evening, i'm chris math use in washington. leading off, obama/clinton. the o.c. the best political mooch president obama made in his presidency even before he was president was to forge a lincolnesque coalition with the other force in the democratic party, the clintons, naming hillary clinton as secretary of state was just the beginning. last week, she took the front line job in bringing about what could be obama's greatest presidential achievement, peace in the middle east. this week president clinton joined hands was to forge a coalition with the other force in the democratic party, we have arianna huffington. is the quote still taboo? we're talking christine o'donnell. our friend bill mahr rebroadcast a clip of o'donnell from the show in which o'donnell said she dabbled with witchcraft and between the a date of satanic altar. what will the voters of delaware make of that? republican dale peterson of alabama said things like president obama hates america. you know, the usual stuff. this unthinking hate rested president by right wingers and tea partiers has g

and we want to get jobs in america. >> it sounded to us yesterday like there was a willingness by the -- by congressman boehner to go to the president's position of keeping middle class tax relief inplace. >> all right. that's what happened over the weekend. msnbc political analyst richard wolffe joins us from the white house north lawn. when we hear this, sounds like it's couched in a quiet way by john boehner. is this really a signal for compromise? a lot of folks asking that. >> reporter: well, that's a great question. it's campaign season, okay? so there was some signaling of compromise, boehner has said that, in fact, he is just trying to take a talking point away from the white house. there's all of this positioning going on. the point is he's trying to make himself look reasonable to the electorate, and in doing so he has just undermined what has been actually a very effective republican strategy for the last two years or so, which is so oppose t obama white house on significant measures, on big measures like tax cuts, and fiscal policy in tgeneral. ey are trying to say
's deputy political director joining us from washington. so it's called the pledge to america, mark. what's in it? >> well, savannah, there are many components, but among the provisions that they are going to be laying out today, one would be make all the bush tax cuts permanent. another priority for them would hold weekly votes on spending cuts. and then finally, to repeal and replace health care. of course, many of these ideas aren't necessarily new. we've been hearing from republicans for a very long time their desire to repeal and replace health care along with extending the bush tax cuts. but this is a response to democratic charges of where is the beef? what would republicans do if they take back control of congress? and this 21-page document essentially does that. it lays out their ideas, what they would like to accomplish, and their priorities for the next congress. >> all right. mark murray in our washington newsroom. you know, savannah, the interesting thing was the reaction among folks at national review, for instance, or representing the pragmatic ring of the republican party
for that. thanks to you at home for staying with us for the next hour. plenty of chaos to sort out from this day of news and not just the hardcore book burning wing nuttery chaos out of florida. there's also the republican senate primary now newly starring sarah palin and a tea party candidate who says that abstinence is not enough. we all must always abstain from ourselves. as well if you know what i mean and one of the most political fake campaigns and the rachel maddow staff vote for the most unhinged campaign speech and it had a lot of competition. that's coming up this hour. we begin with the extremist christian pastor in florida who was planning to commemorate the anniversary of 9/11 by burning copies of the koran. he has now changed his plans twice. pastor claimed in a press conference this afternoon he was canceling his koran burning because the imam behind the planned islam cultural center in downtown manhattan agreed to move the building away from the world trade center site. he said he's ditching it because the ground zero mosque is moving but the imam and developer behind th
,000 bail. we don't know if money was paid, who paid it. we think one of the gulf nations, oman. the u.s. government says it did not. and if it was paid if it was 500,000 or less. >> absolutely. we do have information from the swiss embassy who represents u.s. interests here that the om omani people were instrumental in securing her release. all indications are they did help with the bail. >> it's an amazing drama, and our focus does remain on josh and shane and the fact they are still in prison and, in fact, the prosecutor said today that they will have to stay in july for two more months. this is the first time we had an end date. it doesn't seem they will be released immediately. >> it's not such an ominous sign, because it's the first time they put a time frame on this, which could be a positive signal. >> thank you, ali arouzi, we'll have much more of your reporting on msnba and throughout the day and evening. now joining us is nicholas burns, former undersecretary of state who entered a lot of negotiations behind the scenes with the iranians over the years on issues as large as the

"countdown with keith olbermann" starts right now. >>> which of these stories will you be talking about tomorrow? pledge this. >> they proposed $4 trillion worth of tax cuts and $16 billion in spending cuts and then they said we're going to somehow magically balance the budget. that's not a serious approach. >> as the president pounds the republicans on the lemon of a pledge, even the gop begins to back down. those weren't plans. they were just measurements. >> once americans understand how big the problem is, then we can begin to talk about potential solutions. >> and it's really a pledge to nowhere. the economic policy institute with an astounding crunch of the numbers. how many jobs would the gop pledge kill off? >>> the new health care metric. the number of americans who think we need more doubles the number who think we need none and why is that poll a secret? let's go to the videotape. >> evolution is a myth and even darwin himself -- >> evolu
in and keeping us up to date and we are keeping our eye on the situation. when we get details, we will pass them along. we have another breaking news story from mexico. hundreds of families may be dead because of this hillside collapse that happened there. it was a landslide that happened in the region of mexico, the southern part of the country, closer to guatemala. after days of rain, a landslide buried between 100 and 300 homes, as many as 1,000 people could be dead. rescuers meantime having challenges even getting to the area. the weather channel's alex wal sas in atlanta. me a little bit about the weather conditions and how it might hamper the rescue effort. >> we are talking about an area here that is very, very hilly. remember we just had a tropical cyclone matthew that moved through. matthew, remnants are hanging around and the moisture is still around for us. all the moisture is rolling into the hilly terrain in mexico, southern portions of mexico. as that happens, the moisture begins to rise even more with the terrain and all that rising with warm moist air. gets a chance to precipitat
caught in this situation, that the immediate threat, this is the way it appears to us based on the facts we have, that the immediate threat to the people who work inside johns hopkins nelson building, that threat is now not a problem. so clint, we're keeping our eye on the situation. we'll keep our viewers up to date if we get more information that makes it seem like it's an ongoing problem there. thank you for your help, as well. >> okay, contessa. >>> the fight in congress over your money is now reaching fevered pitch. democrats and republicans have put up their dukes over middle-class tax cuts. and both sides are using that as ammunition for election day. the president called on congress once again to extend a tax cut for the middle class. but republicans want to extend the bush tax cuts for everyone. including the super wealthy. >> that this is not the time to increase taxes on anyone. >> vice president biden says the white house won't back down on this fight, either. biden says the tax money won't matter to people making millions of dollars. but for the middle-class, it could mean t
which i would prefer, if they believe there's a moral equivalency there or they don't and they're using it for political purposes. either way, whichever it is, it's not just bad domestic politics for the president, and it is for a variety of reasons including it takes him off the economy and divides the democrats on a range of issues. but i almost resist talking about this as a political issue. this is a national security crisis.f both of these issues are. you have general petraeus getting involved in that domestic matter of the first amendment issue shows the extraordinary extent to which people in the military are -- men and women overseas think this is a big deal. and to have it to be brought into domestic politics and inflamed by republicans, again, out of principle, maybe, out of political purposes maybe, whatever the reason is really a national and international tragedy. and unfortunately the president, foa variety of reasons, is too weak on his own to deal with it. >> i think you're right. >> this is so rare to say here's my religious faith, i have to put it out as a shield. here

of burning the muslim holy book saying it will cause profound damage to the u.s. interest abroad. >> although this might be one individual in florida, part of my concern is to make sure that we don't start having a whole bunch of folks all across the country think a way of our troops, sons and daughters. >> more on the latest development in florida. tom, what is the latest that you're hearing right now? >> right now we're still waiting on the so-called challenge and what is going to come of it. the reverend terry jones came out and we're expecting comments. and he's a very high up evangelical leader. he gave phone numbers out so that the imam in new york could call him. we're unsure about what the purpose of this is. they stated clearly that, a, they didn't have any contact with the parties down here and that they are not going to barter any trading here for the move up in the mosque in new york. so we're very much here waiting for word on what is going to happen. they said regardless of what happens around 3:30, 3:20 they will make more comments. they said, is it right for the imam up in new
on us just makes no sense to me. >> this is what i don't get, what do you mean by scapegoating? setting up a blame game situation assuming you're going to get beaten? >> i worry about that a bit. i'm not saying it flat-out. does it cross my mind? sure. i can't think of any other reason to do this. i don't know why you think a way to motivate people is to tell them they're wrong, ungrateful, irresponsible. so when my mind can't find a good political reason. i go to future political reasons. maybe that's it or maybe they're just angry and need to get it in check. >> i think the last one is probably true. human nature may be just ticked off at the left progressive left. let's look at the way the president is using the language. quote, in a new "rolling stone" interview, the president said -- quote the idea that we've got a lot of enthusiasm in the democratic people need to shake off this lethargy. people need to buck up. there's the phrase, josh. i would imagine it's a combination of joan says they're angry that the left has been hitting them hard, and they're trying to get them guilt ridd
